New England Revolution 4, Montreal Impact 0 | 2018 MLS Match Recap

It was a night of firsts for the New England Revolution, as two players scored their first goals in MLS in a 4-0 win over 10-man Montreal Impact at Gillette Stadium on Friday.
The Impact went down to 10 men just 14 minutes in, as midfielder Saphir Taider was shown a straight red card for a dangerous challenge on Luis Caicedo, catching the Colombian squarely on the shin. Six minutes later, the Revolution went ahead through Teal Bunbury, scoring his second goal in as many matches.
Later in the half, it appeared the rout would be on, as the Revolution drew a penalty. But following Video Review confirming the decision, Diego Fagundez's attempt from the spot was saved by Impact goalkeeper Evan Bush to keep it a one-goal game.
Defender Andrew Farrell then scored his first career goal in MLS in first-half stoppage time -- in his 164th MLS regular season appearance -- to put the hosts ahead 2-0 at the break. Fagundez made amends for this penalty save with a goal of his own in the 71st minute and Wilfried Zahibo scored his first MLS goal nine minutes later to put the game well and truly out of reach.
